    Post What's the deal with twitter?

    I have heard a lot about twitter and the last twitter thread reinvigorated my curiousity. I wanna know what's the big deal? Of the little I have learned it sounds like a giant network of people boring each other with how dull their lives are. Now I'm not much of a facebook fan either (it seems to me like a "internet for dummies" program) so I probably wont ever undstand twitter, but if someone could enlighten me as to why the world has gone crazy for it that would be cool.

    My cousin uses it because shes in PR and it helps her get instant notifications of whats going on in the world. Other than shit like that, I dont see a reason to have it. Facebook is enough.


    I'd like to die with the songs I love stuck in my head. I hope to make the most of these hollow bones we become.
    I raise a toast to the the souls that sang all along. I've been gathering friends to just to make some sounds,
    before the ship goes down, I've been making amends by making the rounds before the whole world ends

    Hi there:

    Twitter never ever was so popular amongst the internet community, twitter was just a oversimplist and dumb blog for people that is unable to configure their own wordpress (or blogger).

    But suddenly, a PR found it, and consider it as a goldmine :a way to do free marketing for millions of people. But, as usually happens, some people created a new "trend" in the cyberspace, then later it fade away, rinse and repeat.

    Geocities did it, also Myspace,Napster and now Twitter and Facebook are the most popular, but i bet for no more than a couple of years more until people realize that they don't need to spend their time in such useless services.

    Twitter is just more or less social networking. Keeping people in touch, and when it makes it big (myspace, facebook, twitter) it becomes a hot spot for marketing since millions of people are using it. Thus its so main stream now.

    for celebs (and celeb watchers), people with ADD, and people who are sooo wired they need their updates fed to their phones

    it has its uses, but i'm not in its target audience. kinda tangential, but it's hemorrhaging money like facebook. hopefully it'll get bought by google and google will make it all better
